What is the meaning of the sanskrit verses in the song ‘Kaun hai wo’ in movie Bahubali?
Probably all of us listened this song “Kaun hai wo” from “Baahubali: The Beginning” and tried to spell the verse “Jattaa kattaaha sambhrama bhraman nilimpa nirjharii……” but somehow failed. Am I right ?
Verse 1 – Jattaa kattaaha sambhrama bhraman nilimpa nirjharii
Vilola viici vallarii viraajamaana muurdhani
Dhagad dhagad dhagaj jvalal lalaatta patttta paavake
Kishora candra shekhare ratih pratikssannam mama
Verse 2 – Dhara dharendra nandni vilaasa bandhu bandhuras
Phuradru gandh ta santatip parmodamana maana..sey
Kripa kataksha dhorni niruddha duddha dharapari
Kuachithi jambharey manohvinod mai tu vastuni..
Verse 3 – Jatta bhujanga pingaras
Parili gadhi vadhupukey
Vibbhatt bhutho vardari..
The song has three Sanskrit shlok which are taken from “Shiv Tandav Stotram” actually written by Ravana for Lord Shiva.
There are total 15 Shlok in Shiv Tandav Stotram.
Following are the three Shloks used in the song, with their meaning:
किशोरचन्द्रशेखरे रतिः प्रतिक्षणं मम ||२||
I have a very deep interest in Lord Shiva, whose head is glorified by the rows of moving waves of the celestial river Ganga, agitating in the deep well of his hair-locks, and who has the brilliant fire flaming on the surface of his forehead, and who has the crescent moon as a jewel on his head.
क्वचिद्दिगम्बरे(क्वचिच्चिदम्बरे) मनो विनोदमेतु वस्तुनि ||३||
May my mind seek happiness in the Lord Shiva, in whose mind all the living beings of the glorious universe exist, who is the sportive companion of Parvati (daughter of the mountain king), who controls invincible hardships with the flow of his compassionate look, who is all-persuasive (the directions are his clothes).
मनो विनोदमद्भुतं बिभर्तु भूतभर्तरि ||४||
May I seek wonderful pleasure in Lord Shiva, who is supporter of all life, who with his creeping snake with reddish brown hood and with the luster of his gem on it spreading out variegated colors on the beautiful faces of the maidens of directions, who is covered with a glittering upper garment made of the skin of a huge intoxicated elephant.
So, I hope next time when you listen the song, you will able to spell and correctly spell the whole song !
